The AMC continues Adult Volunteer Vacation programming in 2013, kicking the year off with not 2 but 3 weeks on the U.S. Virgin Island of St. John this February! In conjunction with The US Virgin Islands National Park and Friends of the Virgin Islands, AMC sends trail crew leaders from its North Country Trails Volunteer Programs, to work on the park’s trails with volunteers. Each of the three weeks in February, we welcome twelve volunteers aged 18 and over to share in this unique experience.
The crews stay in the National Park at Cinnamon Bay Campground, one of the only campgrounds in the entire US Virgin Islands. Trail work takes place in the mornings and early afternoons, and the rest of the day is free to enjoy the spectacular scenery. Beginner through experienced trail workers are all welcome and we will gladly train you on the tools and techniques used to enhance and repair miles of trails. Spots are still open (but filling fast) so if you’re looking for a sunny, warm, non-traditional vacation, sign up by downloading a registration at our website: http://www.outdoors.org/conservation/trails/volunteer/trailopps/usvi-st-john.cfm
